    The firefox jive

    HELP!

    Everytime I startup Firefox the site i'm viewing jives around in the frame, up and down.

    I have uninstalled, reinstalled, redownloaded, checked for spyware/viri NOTHING!

    What can I do?

    sure your mouse isn't the culprit? I just had to install new mouse drivers because of something similar on my PC after some updates... MS Mouse in fact.

    Mine really liked to do th at; it's quit, but still likes to jive in the Bookmarks menu. All I have to do is use the wheel-scroll to make it stop.

    Seriously... it was only Firefox here too. Firefox captures the mouse wheel in some archaic manner that's ultra-annoying or something.

    Yup extention called RIP.
    Just go to your upgrades and there's a list of all the different things you can install.
    When you rightclick on something theres an option to "remove this permanently" It will highlight the thing you want removed and just click!
    Tada!!! Now whenever you load a specific url the ads/ useless stuff is GONE!!! FOREVER!!!
    No more waiting for banners to load!!!
    Fun!!!

    Maybe you could give us the URL of the site that is screwing up and we can point out all the problems in the html/css/ cr ppy javascript etc..

    please refer to
